$8,000 Custom ATV up for Grabs at

Thu, 02 Jul 2009

Our sister site,, is ready to give away the Yamaha Raptor ATV they’ve been customizing over the last few weeks.

They took a base Yamaha Raptor 250 valued at $4,499.00 and modified it into an $8,000 beast! Why they just don’t keep it in the office to use for coffee runs is beyond me.

They’ve slapped on new air filters, mufflers, new alloy wheels, new tires, front bumper and grab bar, skid plates, nerf bars, new grips, new seat cover, new plastics, and more!

PHEW! That’s a heck of a lot of stuff thrown on! AND you also get a couple hundred dollars worth of Shift riding gear thrown in!

Check this machine out:

Head over to for a chance to win this puppy!
